Walkin’ in a Literary Wonderland

Bellerose Avenue was transformed into a literary-themed winter wonderland on Dec. 21. The doors to each room were decorated by the PTA to represent the holiday book the class had read. Some of the books read included “Snowflake Bentley,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” and more. Students were pleasantly surprised when they arrived at that morning and the school was transformed!

Throughout the day, Christmas music played on the speakers as students, clad in their holiday pajamas, were taken on a tour of the school to view each room’s door. Inside the classrooms, students worked on holiday crafts, such as decoupage votive holders and homemade snow globes, to bring home to their families.

“Holiday activities are fun, but they’re so much more than that,” said Principal Lori Beekman, “they bring everyone—parents, teachers, and students—together, further strengthening our community.”
